Quantum technologies will change society in profound and unimaginable ways. Gateway Quantum Electronics is building hardware to automate the operation of quantum noise-limited microwave amplifiers, making quantum computers scalable and quantum sensors easier to deploy.

Company Leadership


Co-Founder & CEO

GQE co-founder and CEO Jordan Russell completed his PhD in Physics at Washington University in St. Louis in 2019 where he studied the quantum electronic and optical properties of graphene. As one of the inaugural postdoctoral scientists for WUSTL’s Center for Quantum Leaps he led the development of novel superconducting single-photon detectors and assisted in the production of quantum noise-limited microwave amplifiers. His passions for scientific entrepreneurship, gardening, and cats are surpassed only by his love of exotic hardware.
